Police have arrested a driver after they failed a breath test following multiple calls from members of the public.

Officers from Gorleston responded to a number of calls on Wednesday night to reports of a vehicle being driven around Belton “erratically” and the driver was suspected of drink driving.

The car was later located and was found to have two defective tyres. The driver blew 48 in a roadside breath test, which is over the limit, and was arrested.

Great Yarmouth police tweeted: “Thank you to the public for calls”.
